Taste and Texturecrisp, savory
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 large egg, slightly beaten
- 4 cups cooked white rice
- ½ cup peas
- ½ cup carrots, cut into ½-inch dice and blanched in boiling water for 1 minute
- ½ cup diced mushrooms
- ¾ cup cooked shrimp
- ¾ cup diced barbecued or cooked chicken
- 2 green onions, with tops, diced
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
Heat a wok or nonstick skillet over high heat, add the vegetable oil, and stir-fry the egg. Cook the egg to soft scramble. If the rice has just been cooked, fluff with a fork to allow steam to escape and the rice to cool before adding to the wok. After the rice is added, stir constantly and cook for 2 minutes (turn the heat down if the rice starts to stick to the bottom).
Add the peas, diced carrots, diced mushrooms, shrimp, barbecued chicken, green onions, and oyster sauce. Stir until well mixed and the vegetables are hot, about 1 minute. Serve.
